We stayed for 4 nights in a girls trip away. It was the perfect setup for friends. Beautiful swimming pool and only steps from Muri lagoon. The house was private and had all you may need including kayaks. Biggest eels ever in the creek which were fun to watch. Handy to cafes and bars. Joy was in hand to help...

Our 2 week vacation at The Navigator was fabulous! The house was wonderful and stocked with everything you would need. Loved being able to just open up the house and let the ocean breezes blow through. We had several doggie visitors during our stay, but one particular dog became very fond of us. Joy and John were the best hosts...

This is the second time we have stayed at the Navigator and have already booked for next year. It is a magic place set on what is really a private part of Muri Beach. On arrival you are in awe of the house and the outlook. We used the pool more this time, so coupled with the beach, we swam...

Probably the best location on the island. Muri Beach and Titikaveka have the reef furthest from the shore giving the largest area of lagoon. The Navigator has the advantage of being tucked round the corner from the main beach, hotels and Captain Tamas 18-30 type of fun and games. It has its own bit of beach which isn't actually private...

An amazing house, (so spacious and very modern) and location, pool and beach right on your door-step. Excellent view overlooking the lagoon. It was like having your own little hideaway in paradise. We made good use of the kayaks and snorkel gears. Joy and John are terrific hosts. What else could you ask for. Our flight was cancelled, and our...

We stayed for 6 nights with our 3 teenage children. We could have stayed 6 weeks. What a great choice, upon arrival we couldn't believe how big the house was or how gorgeous the view. Joy met us with big smiles and lovely welcome, fridge full of goodies and kitchen very nicely set up for us (even having removed the...

Just returned from a week in Rarotonga at the Navigator. Joy and John are great hosts and their home was perfect for our family of five. We loved the location, the pool, the facilities and our daily visits from Stumpy and the rest of the dog posse - when Stumpy would let them visit! The Navigator is a lovely home...

It's hard to imagine that The Navigator could have been better the second time around, but it truly was. Having stayed in 2010, we didn't expect this visit (March/April 2012) to surpass the last. It did, in many ways. The Navigator is a beautiful home in the most amazing location on Muri Beach. The views, the beach, privacy, peace and...
